Weighty wine with impressive concentration and complexity. Passionfruit, struck match/mineral and green capsicum flavours with a suggestion of cashew nut.

Weighty wine with greater concentration and complexity than the regular label. Passionfruit, struck match, mineral and green capsicum flavours, with a suggestion of cashew nut. An impressive wine with development potential
Cuisine Magazine issue 180 - Five Stars and Top 10
